A man in love with film photography not the inferior digital kind than his wife is the focus of this short story from Rebecca McNutt There are beautifully written characters the author says about human obsessions in a short story than other writers manage in a whole novel If Rod Serling was still alive he could have used this as a terrific episode of The Twilight Zone Wonderful Capturing the sensory banality of a cooped up eccentric’s obsession with nostalgia and film Rebecca McNutt’s Celluloid Graveyard sends a haunting message as eerily intriguing as its title and seeks to exhort balance in the absence of polarities Obviously writing with the lense of photography and a keen eye for detail Celluloid Graveyard is rife with the suburban visuals of fading film and an adherence to the past’s constricting sense of poverty set in a duel with the present’s ambivalent creed of accepting the newest it thing like free candy and sharply provides three distinct perspectives in character as if the story is a stage play complete with a fourth wall break as a powerfully uasi act three twist Very Tales from the Darkside esue I loved it Poor Coop though all he wanted was to be left alone with his memories but the world was taking it all away
